Stéphanie is very knowledgeable of her region & well travelled to seeming unreachable places throughout Asia. I had an incredibly personal & cultural engaging experience visiting Anglet and the Pays Basque for the first time.

She collected me from the train station and whisked me away to Saint Jean du Luz for a history lesson and to see traditional Basque dancing which I was surprisingly invited to join in the centre of the town square.

We visited Biarritz for a morning walk along the beach front, to see the old port and architecture of the city. A cherry festival for the afternoon where we forgot to try the cherries though experienced more Basque culture and an amazing drive through the countryside and surrounding mountains.

Thank you for everything, the slight detour into Spain and especially the insight into the local Basque Culture.
